Seoul shares down from record; KTF, exporters hit


SEOUL, April 25 (Reuters) - Seoul shares fell on Wednesday from a record following disappointing earnings results, including those from KTF, while exporters fell as weak U.S. economic data cast doubt on the outlook for South Korea's no.2 export market.

The benchmark Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI) fell 0.72 percent to 1,545.55 points, after earlier hitting a record 1,558.72, its 13th all-time high this month.

KTF Co. Ltd. fell 0.34 percent to 29,100 won, while Hyundai Motor Co. slumped 2.42 percent to 60,500 won.
